Will a PC that's running an i7-4771, a Gigabyte Z97-D3H, and a GTX 970 be compatible with Mac OS to allow for the running of both from the same system?

Also you may need AMD card, Nvidia cards are not supported by new version of MacOS.

Was supposed to say Z97, sorry.

So what exactly will I need for this then software-wise? If it's just an Mac OS image where can I get it from?

With questions like that, I just have to ask... do you actually need OSX? Did you consult with [insert your search engine of choice] beforehand?

Also you may need AMD card, Nvidia cards are not supported by new version of MacOS.
There's a workaround for Catalina/Mojave, but with my mixed results even on macbooks (occasional lag/artifacts etc), I'd stick with High Sierra for now, especially for hackintosh.

Go read over at TonyMacx86, those guys can help you in detail.
It's easier if you have access to an actual Mac.
